Germany's Guilt or Germany's Fate
For years I have, as a novice historian, tried to understand how such an amazing people such as the Germans ever allowed Hitler and his pseudo-brand of National Socialism to obtain power. Not only does this series of essays from very credible and expert historians and analysts, do this but it also taught me a lot about the German people. The book gives essays from a diversity of viewpoints. The authors were not only alive during this critical point in history, some of them actually lived under the regime. This gives us an insight probably not available anymore, written before history had time to become fiction and myth. For me this is the definitive publication for understanding the rise of the Nazi Party in Germany.
